Wednesday’s Helping: Healthier Pancakes

Indulge yourself with a beneficial twist

The Mixed Stew suggests taking this popular breakfast staple and making them more nutritious. For example, add sweet potatoes to give the cakes some fiber oomph. Or, add a tablespoon or two of crushed nuts or whole-grain granola to give every bite more crunch and nutty flavors. Also, take a hint from blueberry pancakes and try mixing in other fruits, such as chopped bananas, sliced raspberries, or crushed peaches into your regular pancake batter. Tossing in a tablespoon or two of flaxseed, wheat germ, or flaxseed oil also creates a healthier bit of pancake in every bite.
